This month we hear about the good news that underpins our new advertising campaign, in the form of impressive leaps in survival rates from many common cancers since the 1970s.

But we also investigate a less promising statistic, discussing figures that show the number of women diagnosed with womb cancer is at its highest for thirty years.

We hear about an important trial testing a new treatment for neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer. The results are so impressive that they’ve already led to a change in the way that children are treated.

And finally, we take an in-depth look at the EPIC study – the largest ever study of diet and cancer risk. Is there such a thing as a superfood? And what do we know for sure about the links between what we eat and drink and our risk of cancer?
